When I was in Berlin I wanted to see this tribute, but I simply ran out of time. Thank you for sharing these wonderful photos of such an important monument.

I was impressed by the name of the memorial. "Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe". Full credit and kudos to the Germans for acknowledging what happened and their role in it. I'm not sure if other countries would have used such strong language.

I have to admire the Germans for looking at their historic atrocities full on and not sugar coating anything. These stones use the word "Ermordet", which means "Murdered". I wonder how many other nations in the world would say that about their past actions?

Few indeed, and it's a change (a controversial one for many) from earlier years when it was difficult to find anyone in Germany who acknowledged having even been there. There was a great deal of that in the late 50s when we lived there. Perhaps what is significant is that the recognition was NOT at the moment of defeat, but only after struggle and reflection. If you're interested, there's an official German site for Sites of Remembrance 1933-1945 at www.orte-der-erinnerung.de with many links...

I am so glad you wrote this article. I saw the stumbling stones when I was in Northern Germany last year. Excellent article and photos!
